If you are attempting to load vmware tools into a windows server 2012 vm, during the installation you may find you screen goes blank or black and you can not do anything with it apart from shut it down. You may also find that when you start the vm again when the vmware graphics driver initiates the display will blank out again.
To fix this issue you need to enable the “accelerate 3d graphics” option within the vm’s settings when it is powered off which should resolve the problem.
